At least he died doing something he liked and won himself a Darwin Award too!

From the article:

"A US daredevil pilot has been killed during an attempted launch of a homemade rocket in the Californian desert. "Mad" Mike Hughes, 64, crash-landed his steam-powered rocket shortly after take-off near Barstow on Saturday. ... Hughes was well-known for his belief that the Earth was flat."

A rather elaborate, although spectacular, way to commit suicide.

But, you're right, he went out the way he wanted to as he knew all about the risks.

I guess, in a way, he did prove the earth was flat when he crashed on flat ground and didn't fall off the edge....
